    2008 Kawasaki STX-15F Speed?

    When I go out on my ski I have 13 hours on it, just opened it up for the first time the speedometer says 70, is this right?

    Sorry, but the answer is no. That is the very reason that they are called dreamometers. Get a gps and you will find your top speed to be 60-62 mph.

    I amazed how many kawis are smoking rxp's and rxt's....I ride with 6 other guys and they all have rxp's and rxt's and they smoke me everytime on my stxr, something must be wrong with mine. I know you have a stx15f but the stxr is as fast as it but I get smoked...

    It depends on what they are running and the water conditions. The 02 STXR I had with nothing but handling mods would pull away from RXP's in rough water, it did it in several cc races but conditions must be correct. If its smooth your dead and they will NOT handle with you, period, but you must have some handling stuff or they will.

    It's all about the water. I have a 250x and I have not been beat yet. The lakes I ride at are rough. The fastest thing I raced was a stxr (with some mods). The rxp's I have raced got smoked. The rxt was a close secound to the stxr (with mods). If you always ride in the rough don't worry about what the speed is GPS or dreamometer. What counts is whos in the front.

    hmmmm could it be all in the hole shot you get???? I have some friends that have the rxt and rxp and another one who has the p-x. Now the only thing I have done to date is installed a keel guard, nothing else. I ran the p-x, both with gps and took him by 1.5 mph.Now it did help that i had 3 bars left of fuel, but thats it. Both ski's appeared to be dead even when we went by our friends sitting out in the lake. This took place on Greers Ferry lake where the Little Red river spills out. The water temp is almost a constant 68 to 70 degrees as its an underground spring fed river out of the ozark mountians. I ran 67.5 and his was 66mph. Its not much but then again 1.5mph is what it is. Oh yeah almost forgot.. mine is an 07 with around 12 hours on it
